There’s also some good news for you DIY D&P folk, a hack to give you cheap Xpan fun and a critical take on that hip film. Pull up a chair.Continue reading THE READING ROOM – NEWS & THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED (WEEK 27: 1ST-7TH 2019)

As I clipped in another Instax film pack at Christmas, someone asked so how much does that cost ? The answer I gave was nearly a quid but got me thinking about the cost of shooting film. So how much does shooting film cost us and what will work out the cheapest ?Continue reading If You’re feeling Frugal what film Format should you shoot ?
Poundland deserve some Kudos for keeping us Brits in cheap film for many years but when Agfaphoto Vista Plus 200 (AVP200) was pulled mid 2017 the dream died. Then just in December a new film appeared on the shelf at Poundland. But whilst it may be the cheapest film on the High Street, it is no bargain.Continue reading The New Poundland Film & Where you Can Get A lot more for your Money

In fact we currently have over 180 different films listed on our site – and by the end of the year we expect that number to exceed 200!
